Volleyball Gets Win in Bethany

—By Laura Nelson on 11/08/2012 Alex SchmittAlex Schmitt Michaela ReddingAlex Schmitt Bethany, Okla.—Earlier this week, the OPSU volleyball team traveled to Bethany to take on two non-conference opponents, Southwestern Christian University and Oklahoma Wesleyan University.

The women first met up with the SCU Eagles and lost the first set 25-18. They rallied back in the second set, flipping the first set score in their favor. They sailed on that momentum to take the third and fourth sets, 25-15 and 25-20 and won the match 3-1. Lexi McAdam and Jessica DeBaun led both teams with nine kills each while Erica Skipper was credited with the most digs overall with 26. Michaela Redding had four solo blocks and was in on another four. Terra Madden had 22 assists and 16 digs while Nora Pulaski had 15 digs.

The Aggies remained in Bethany to play a second match against another Eagle team, Oklahoma Wesleyan University. The women fought hard and kept the score close throughout three sets, but lost the match 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-22). Skipper had 10 kills, Kayla Schwartz had 13 assists, and Alex Schmitt had 18 digs.

The women play their final season game at home this evening against Northwestern Oklahoma State University, a team that beat them 3-1 earlier this season in Alva. Seniors Alex Schmitt and Michaela Redding will be honored just prior to the first serve.
